There are emerging technical advances whereby it is becoming not just possible but viable to perform advanced information analytics on data after it has been anonymized (shredded).
This could have profound implications for future information sharing missions. Because, if an organization intends to share its sensitive data and it is possible to share only anonymized data while achieving a materially similar result, why would they ever share sensitive data any other way?
There are a lot of winners in this alternate future as the risk of unintended disclosure (of one’s sensitive data) is greatly reduced. Not just good business but better privacy.
Not a lot of privacy-enhancing technologies also have a compelling business case, but in this case, I think this could be a win win.
